Lhasa - Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar - Khasgar Tour

Khasgar lies in the autonomous province Xingxang, situated in the far west of China. Bordering with Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Turkistan it once was a major halt for Caravans on the Silk Road. Today it is a flourishing commercial centre with a population composed of Uighur, Tajik and Kirgiz nationalities. Here it is the Han Chinese who is in the minority. 

We can start this tour from Kathmandu, Lhasa or the mainland of China. The trip can be designed according your preferences, amount of time or the places you would like to visit within the tour.
